Roma, Itali ~ Part 2

I'm back with part 2 of our days in Rome!  Oh...how I love this city ~ I can't wait to go back.  Here a few of the many photos we took.

G-Ma and Matt waiting to get into the Vatican on Friday morning.  We had a 10am reservation for the tour of the Vatican and Sistine Chapel.  We were so happy glad we didn't have to wait in the VERY LONG line to go inside.  That boy sure loves his G-Ma!

Walking around the streets of Rome




We had a FABULOUS dinner at Tre Scalini at Piazza Novona.
This area of the city was one of our favorites.



Uncle Shawn, G-Pa, G-Ma, and Uncle Richard



Uncle Shawn just loves Megan & Matt ~ they are quite the trio!



We all tossed a coin over our shoulder into the lovely Trevi Fountain with wishes
to return to this beautiful city!








Just outside our hotel, there was a wonderful market that opened each morning called Campo dei Fiori. 
The smells of the fruits, vegetables, spices and other foods was wonderful!  By late afternoon, the market was taken down and the area was cleaned up for a busy evening at the restaurants on the Piazza.  This was one of our favorite places to walk around each morning.




After lunch on the Piazza near our hotel, it was time to pack up and get ready for our trip down to Civitavecchia (90 minutes southwest of Rome).  Megan struck a pose as we waited to load the van.



Civitavecchia is the port city for Royal Caribbean ships ~ that is the next leg of our big European Adventure & I'll be back another day with those photos.
